Re: orion dss and rabbis

Much of what Martin Jaffee wrote--e.g., on L. Ginzberg and C. Rabin--makes
good sense. But, since there is very, very little surviving Second Temple
Period Pharisee literature in Hebrew, no, IMO, it is not reasonable to say
that one cannot recognize a pun on "halakah" until some cache of Pharisee
texts--surely not Qumran--turns up.
